to leave it there. thank you for coming on the show. we appreciate it. >> you're welcome. >> dan, you're the bear on the desk. would you agree with even mr. shilling? >> i agree with him. and one of the results of the cliff negotiation that we had that concluded at the beginning of the year is, i think people that are bearing the brunt of the tax increases, think on really marginal level are going to see to pull back in spending. and i think tiffany's preannouncement last week, they didn't give guy danidance yet, it's going to be interesting. i'm going to -- i suppose that we're going to see the first half is slightly weak and that could lead to some worries about recession. >> okay. let's move on and talk ebay here. it is moving higher in the aftermarket session after posting earnings. jon fortt joins us now with the latest. jon? >> yeah, melissa. ebay's ceo taking a bit of a victory lap now. let's look at the numbers they did in the quarter. revenue with $3.99 billion. a little bit above expectations. eps, 70 cents above the 69. the guidance came in light, but it looks like wall str
around. joining me now on the phone is dan niles. along with shaw woo. good to talk with you gentlemen. dan, what's your take on this dell story? >> i mean, i think it's something that's been talked about for awhile. you can go back to actually 2010 in june and michael was at a conference and somebody asked him do you ever think about taking your company private? and the answer was yes. there's been this talk for a long time. was one of the ten worst performing stocks in the s&p last year. it was one of the top ten cheapest though. if you're looking at it from that perspective, the timing seems to make sense. >> so let me ask you, shaw, what you think. how would shareholders work out in this deal? >> well, you know, i agree with dan that this rumor's been going around for awhile. but i think the biggest problem is that the size of dell. you look at the stock today. it's -- the market cap's now $21 billion. so in the takeout, it would have to be a premium to that. possibly $30 billion. that's a lot of capital to raise. a lot of debt financing. so we think because of the size of this dea
. they join us now. dan, let me go to you first because we have been hitting on this theme that maybe we are setting up for a little bit of a drawdown of these gains, these spectacular gains we have had since the first of the year, do you think a drawdown is coming and might you hold your cash until then? >> yeah, i mean, certainly a drawdown is coming. you know, the question is to what extent? you know, momentum in the markets as we push to new highs on the s&p 500, again, hitting that 1475, moment you mean started to wane a little bit. i think the bulls are getting tired. so you know this could set up for a bout of profit taking. underneath the surface, we're also seeing rotation, so a lot of the names and a lot of the sectors that worked in 2012, they may be susceptible or vulnerable to a bit more profit taking so you want to be careful there. liz: could i ask you dan, which sectors? i mean financials obviously did very well in 2012, would they be ones that are just a little bit susceptible to this? >> well, you know, look, it would be across the board in my opinion. but the most vuln
and ceo of cheg, dan rosenweig is here. >> we've got breaking news from the federal government. senior economics reporter steve liesman has the story. >> the fed is supposed to release this morning the transcript from 2007. those are the ones where they tell you who said what during meetings. an unusual amount of attention to these, because this is the first response of the federal reserve to the crisis which you remember began in the summer of 2007. what are we going to be looking for? what folks were saying in three emergency meetings. three rate cuts totaling 1%. and of course, there was a big debate, inflation versus response to the financial crisis on august #th. putting out a statement saying the main concern was inflation, three days later the federal reserve said it would provide reserves as necessary to combat the financial crisis. here's why this is going to be historically important. the first declines there in 2007, then what we'll do is overlay inflation on this. you can see what the fed was dealing with at the time. you had rising inflation at the time. at the same time y
. >> we want to head across town to find our dan lothian. dan, another historic moment right before noon in the blue room. >> that's right. it's because it's a constitutional requirement that the president takes the oath on this day. just before noon, so the president taking that oath in a private ceremony. surrounded by close family members and friends, the first lady, the first daughters, his sister, his mother-in-law and brother-in-law during that ceremony that lasted just about 30 seconds. and the big public ceremony will take place tomorrow at the capitol and this was a chance for the president in a private ceremony at the swearing in here in the blue room. you saw and heard the president a few seconds ago, take a listen at the very end, after the president started greeting the first lady and the first daughters. >> thank you. dy it. i did it. >> so, leave it to the first daughters. the daughter sasha telling the president he didn't mess up. that's a reference to four years ago. when during that public ceremony they kind of stepped on some of the words, had to do a redo, that didn't
, how come folks like him, dan includinger, are going to give their time to go into someone's home and doing a dinner party? >> chefs are really artists and so they love having a good time and being able to try something new and go into new settings. when they are in the restaurant which is its open experiment, they like to sometimes experiment beyond the constraints of a restaurant so we see that with celebrity chefs, high-end chefs, and then some chefs like the lifestyle of being able to make their own hours and work their own time. >> how does the firm make money. are you profitable yet? tell me how you think kitchit evolves. >> we take a commission of bookings through our site and we're on a strong path towards profitability but not yet. >> and it's >> yes. >> thanks very much, brendan. >> "fast money" begins in just a few minutes. melissa lee is at the u.s. nasdaq market side. >> coming up, what is apple's problem? the analyst who cut his price target all the way down to $530 a share. see what he says and what the base case scenario is in terms of downside and who
national cemetery and together, they took part in the traditional wreath-laying ceremony there. >> dan lothian is on the south lawn of the white house. dan, the president is now basically two hours into his second term. i was going to ask, what happens now? obviously it's all moving toward the big day tomorrow. what's going on? >> that's right. well you know this is a little down time for the president after a very busy day next up for the president and the vice president tonight, both of them will be attending a candlelight service at the national building museum here in washington. caps off again a very busy day that started. the president and vice president laying a wreath at arlington national cemetery and the president attending an african-american in the district and the swearing in ceremony that you pointed out a few seconds ago where the president surrounded by a few close family members and friends taking the oath. the interesting moment i think came at the very end, where the first daughter sasha said to the president. that he didn't mess up. the president acknowledging some
at the open, similar declines in the nasdaq, and s&p 500. joining us now, dan greenhouse. >> good morning to you. >> now let's talk about the nasdaq in particular, way down by apple. let's start with apple, then. what do you see happening with shares from here? >> well, just for starters, we rate the stock a neutral right now and have for several months. i think our advice to investors at this point is probably to stay away. there's a lot of uncertainty. there's a lot of unknowns. the company hasn't saying any about "the wall street journal" article or concerns more generally. so i think it's probably a wise decision to hang out and wait until the company reports and see what kind of guidance they provide. >> and apple, you're looking at a 501 quote there. it is potentially set to open below $500. but, dan, how much of a problem is this going to be for the nasdaq and the indexes more broadly? >> certainly it's more of a problem for the nax das, that's for sure, where it's a considerable portion of the index. it's less, though, for the larger indices like the s&p 500 and certainly the dow.
on the future. unveiling the first electric cadillac. gm chairman dan akerson speaking out about the government debt and spending battle in washington. his interview with jeff flock is coming up. growing up everyone i knew had a cadillac. lori: not your grandpa's cadillac. >> really not. it is top of the hour. time for stocks. as we do every 15 minutes, nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. hey, nicole. >> hey, tracy and lori. we were talking about the debt ceiling that is something that moved front and center very quickly and will remain right in front of every day's trading in the minds of investors and the traders here on wall street. today the dow is down about 12 points after being higher four days in a row. the s&p has been lower. we had the back and forth action, much of the same today. when i talk to traders about the action we've seen, sometimes they're saying that the moves to the downside haven't been decisive. which then tells them that maybe the market needs to test recent highs before it can really sell off. trying to move lower and it can't. be wary of hi

. at the table today, dan gross, tracy meres, law professor at yale university. thanks to all of you for being here. >> thank you. >> i want to start with you in part because i tell this story, a story that i think has been lost even though it's recent history. i worry as we enter into the new conversation about guns and the possibility of getting common sense gun legislation that we will miss this has not always been a partisan issue and hasn't been id logically marketed. what do we learn from this history? >> history is long standing. it goes back far beyond the black panthers. during the fugitive slave law resistan resistance, frederick douglas resisted slave catchers. we see it moving up through the 1960s. your point about the black panthers is interesting. it's a stage where in my scholarship i have described at the dichotomy. the leadership and grass roots made a distinction. they thought it was a crucial resource for black folks. up to the point of the radical resistance of the black panthers, that dichotomy was vividly upheld. the panthers sullied that process. the book i'm working on
correspondent dan lothian is following all of the developments for us this morning. very nice to have you, dan. >> reporter: good morning. >> we know the vice president has sent forth his recommendations. we don't have a copy but you know some of the de-dales in it. could you share with us? >> reporter: that's right interesting that the vice president said today would be the day he would recommend the proposals to the president. he met with the president yesterday and both of them starting reviewing some of the recommendations, the president pointing out that later in the week he'll talk in more detail about what his administration plans to do going forward. some of it will require congressional approval. other things the president plans to do on his own such as a registry, the president said, or getting more data in tracking the weapons that are used by criminals. the president yesterday during his news conference gave a hint as to what the proposals will look like. take a listen. >> what you can count on is the things that i have said in the past, the belief that we have to have stronger bac
the company private. joining us is our private ek wit at the expert from boston dan. >> good morning. >> so this would be a huge, huge 20 plus billion dollar transaction. do you think it can actually happen in this environment? >> no, i don't. now, never say never. stranger things have happened. you've got pension funds, maybe a big sovereign wealth fund comes in. but you'd have to be talking about gst 23 billion, maybe $25 billion deal altogether and i know that dell's got a lot of cash on the books that can kind of help take some of the risk off for the bankers who would have to provide the leveraged financing here. but not enough. a lot of that cash is held overseas so you'd have the big tax implication. it seems a little too big. i talked to a private equity investor yesterday not at tpg or silver lake and he said this is a real, real stretch to get done. >> we're talking about a market cap somewhere in terms of, with a premium in success of sst 20 billion. i don't know what number you want to put on that. you have about $11 billion that you said in cash, but you've got to bring some of
'm wondering if somebody like a dan loeb takes his shares out of a margin account and puts them into cash account, that takes them out of eligibility to be shorted. >> right. >> if he's not the only one doing that, i wonder if that has the ability to create a short squeeze. and if we look, you know, today, we try to borrow shares, there was no boar record available. >> when a stock goes from $25 to $46 -- >> it's bounced back. recovered everything it lost from the bill ackman -- >> you have a lot of motivated buyers. when you have a signal, all you have to do is validate it. what do i get my guys to do? do some research on herbalife. they are screaming buy to me. anybody that shorts this stock has to play defense unless ackman has a catalyst that is not himself. >> well, but to your point, karen, you are saying the short squeeze, it could theoretically continue as the shorts get out, there could be more in but if you take the shares off the market -- >> out of circulation. >> it becomes smaller and the squeeze becomes more painful. >> and guy being as old school that he is -- >> that's my
collects. dan mitchell studies state pension problems with the cato institute and kevin james is running to be mayor. how bad is it? people want to be responsible i think. >> i am not sure. politicians want to be reelected and state government workers want to get as much as they can before the house of cards comes down. there are too many people writing in the wagon netted of people pulling now they raise taxes cc the productive people leaving the state more people living off the government sooner or later nobody is there to pay the bills. john: but california has a higher cost of living. even with that this does not justify the difference of the $50,000 average for 70,000. california prices itself out of the market. john: and calpers assumed the 8% rates of return. now they just lower it down at seven point* 5% like that is responsible. why do they think they can make that rate of return? >> tonight i will party with the victoria secret supermodel. it would happen if calpers will not meet those targets that means the unfunded liability which is a huge will become enormous they cannot pa

doubts as to whether they can make their way through congress. >> thank you, dan. john berman has the other stories. >> you heard dan talking and in a few hours, new york may be one of the first state to enact tougher gun laws. the changes proposed by andrew cuomo puts new measures to place to keep guns away from the mentally ill. >> this is a surge on society. people had to live through these tragedies. tragedy after tragedy after tragedy and people are saying at what point do we get it? at what point do you say enough, we understand? no one else has to die. no more innocent loss of life. >> the governor's bill includes a webster provision, a life without parole sentence for anyone murdering a first responder. that was included in response to the fire and shooting in webster, new york that killed two firefighters. the organization at sandy hook promised for a conversation about guns and school safety. they voted to name a new school building after slain teacher victoria soto. she died after trying to shield her children from the gunman. >> fresh off the fiscal cliff, president ob

, washington analyst dan nicole petallides from the floor of the new york stock exchange. to the big story from the get go, the president's power grab on guns. white house reported reconsidering 19 executive patches for the president to impose unilaterally by -- bypassing congress to take action on guns. these possible actions include universal background checks, banning high-capacity magazine clips and an assault weapons ban. that is that the federal level. look at the state level. new york already moving swiftly on guns. this hour the new york house debating and expected pass a bill being called the toughest gun-control law, calls for stricter assault weapons ban, tougher background checks and restrictions on sales of guns and ammo. all of this appears to have the approval of a small majority of voters, new washington post-abc news poll shows 52% more likely to back some kind of gun control after the shootings in newtown, connecticut. the judge will join us with his take on executive action, power grab maybe by the president. back to the market, apple is well below $500 per share, where is it
profile attorneys and basically to go after sac capital. dan lobe, long in herbal life and others colluded together to short sell the stock, put out false information and drive the stock down. the stock didn't go down. the stock essentially recovered and did pretty well, but their case failed. the case failed because it's hard to prove stock manipulation. apparently, according to chapman, what they are doing, preparing on the legal end, have not filed lawsuit yet, involves stock manipulation. what the company says is behind the scenes, the fcc got involved and interested because of the complaints about akman involving essentially stock manipulation. liz: it's not manipulation to short a stock, but explain first he takes the massive position, moves the markets, he's a big guy doing target, j cpenny, he is involved. the blogs pick him up. >> why is it manipulation? liz: not saying it is. >> you're allowed to do that, it's the first amendment. markets are in the short term imperfect; right? as you know, long term, more reliable, and what happens is markets digest information. they all have in
february 16th of last year. joining us on the newsline, dan is here. you've got a price target of $900 a share. which is almost double from where we are now. doesn't that price target seem a little tone deaf to what's going on with the stock? dan? >> yeah. absolutely. price targets in my opinion are talking points for what you think the value of the stock is, what the opportunity for the stock is. so yeah, to use the point, $900 valuation, you know, clearly that's not the direction other analysts are going right now. not the direction this market wants to go right now. but that's the direction this company's earnings are pointing to. all the hype happening in the last few weeks on apple is centered around the supply chain. none of it is demand. every demand that we see for apple products is very strong. there are areas of weakness in europe, smartphone penetration in the u.s. the market overall in the u.s. is -- not all the points are positive, but generally it's good. >> if you're saying demand is good, but the orders of components for the product for which demand is strong are down,
. we have to deliver the results but we have it within our grasp. >> dan loeb recently took a stake in the company which probably is a good thing in many respects because it's a signal that he believes there's value in the company. but he's also gone after people like roy bostock, and he made it clear he may want some changes. have you been in communication with him? >> yeah, i called him as i do all our major shareholders and welcomed him. i said i was delighted that he thought it was a $40 stock, because he shared the confidence that management has. and i think we're doing a lot of the things that -- the reason dan has come in the stock to the best of my knowledge is he believes the company is on turnaround and he was excited about it. we have -- our board since i joined the board three years ago and became ceo and chairman, we have had a turnover of 6 of our 14 directors. roy happens to be retiring this may, so we'll have 7 of 14 directors turn over in that three-year period. so, i think dan's interest and ours are greatly aligned. >> in the money you're having all your guys mana
governor dan malloy in connecticut. >> in the midst of one of the worst days in our history, we also saw the best of our state, teachers and a therapist that sacrificed their lives protecting students. and when it comes to preventing future acts of violence in our schools, let me say this, more guns are not the answer. >> peggy noonan, newtown happened one month ago tomorrow. we're going to see and hear from vice president biden on tuesday. but we've been talking about this the last few weeks on the program. every time i talk to a group of senators, it does seem that there is not a lot of sharing of the president's sense of urgency on this issue. >> on capitol hill, you mean? well, look, guns are a very tough topic in america. i do think that if the vice president comes forward with some -- with his report on tuesday that looks at the whole violence problem in a way that includes guns and extended magazines and such, but also how we deal with the mentally ill in america and what to do if you have a 17-year-old kid who appears to be unstable, unviolent, there's a cultural angle to this, a
the shouts behind us. >> our friend dan dicker saying this is a must buy. holly frontier has been returning so much to shareholders. these companies are a big beneficiary of the glut of domestic oil versus what we can charge, you know at the pump. the united states oil is so cheap. >>> a couple incongruities today. at yet the dow is positive. you made the point about the macro being positive. >> we are in a rising tide situation. you know, we're supposed to -- if you listen to anyone on how america is doing, i mean, you really think we must be doing terrible. we have higher payroll tax, a gridlock in washington, but the actual job growth is very out of sync, and it almost says like, listen, we got rid of this, let's start hiring. we may be looking at this debt ceiling, and i'm going to invoke shakespeare, the bard, that this may be much ado about nothing. i'm going there. right here. >> right now? the cliff is -- >> don't you love -- you know, when i first heard, i thought what a great title, i said no, moran, take the shakespeare course first the it's going to be claymation death match, ma
potentially, dan akerson of gm said don't screw up the economy holding it hose -- hose hostage, do you share that? >> uncertainty has to be removed as quickly as possible. it is not a good environment for consumer confidence to be built, so we're looking for resolution on debt ceiling, resolution on spending plans so that consumers can focus on really going about their business in a normal way. >> wants to build cars, not make policy. there you go. it's a good one. i owned ford explorers for 20 straight years. this is a real competitor to that vehicle. dennis: jeff flock, good job. thanks, den. cheryl: time for the west coast minute, a double digit return for the public employees pension system. it had a 2% return back in 2012. the nation's largest pension has investments worth $252 billion, almost back to its peak level of 2007 when the fund held $260 billion in assets. the fund's performance was just below its tracking benchmark. arizona governor, january brewer, -- jan brewer, made a push for medicaid extending health care coverage to tens of thousands. her plan seeks $7.9 billion in fede
42 dreamliners this weekend plans to buy up to 75. back to you guys. dennis: thank you, dan springer. a quarter until. nicole is live at the new york stock exchange with a look at apple. nicole: i want to take a look at apple and a lot of things. apple has been a key factor today moving back above the 500 mark. i also want to take a look at facebook and yelp as well. we got our news yesterday that we have been waiting on for about one week with all that anticipation and we saw facebook selloff on the news today down one and a quarter percent on their new graph search allowing users to sort through everything from people and places and similar lakes, local restaurants and that weighs on a name like p. 11. take a look at what yelp is doing at this moment. when we look at a one-year chart, down four and .5% right now, it is down over 11% in just these three trading days. it does not hold well for a company like yelp. that is the latest. back to you. cheryl: we will see you at the top of the hour. our next guest says after months of waiting and writing up a storm in washington, they're p
, the novelist dan brown, relief is on the way. the da vinci code's author's latest release, simply entitled "inferno" is set to hit book shelves on may 14th. the novel will feature the return of renowned harvard symbologist robert lang dodone,t in italy. >>> a top european court ruled a british woman suffered religious discrimination when british airways told her not to wear a cross over her uniform at work. nadia awada was sent home, then offered another position when she refused to hide her cross. she says it all came down to fairness. >> because why should i be made to feel ashamed for wearing my cross, being told off for exercising what i thought was a civil liberty of manifesting my faith, my faith, by wearing the christian cross and other colleagues around me expressing their faith with wearing hijabs, why so me? >> we should note the court's ruling is not legally binding in britain. but the country is legally obligated to take it into account, they say. >>> president's inauguration starts in five days. along with security and staff, do you know who else is preparing? cell phone provi
went up on news we foreshadowed first on fox business that dan lobe had a major investment in it. now what we have is two sort of interesting events that don't really, you know, add or detract from what ackman is saying, that is the company is a pyramid scheme. it will run out, in a pyramid scheme you make money by more distribution, not by selling products. distributors pay you a fee. at some point the distributors run out. these two events don't necessarily detract from that argument that it is a pyramid scheme. but they provide a lift. one argument they will preannounce earnings that will be pretty good at decent analyst expectations or maybe beating them a bit. number two, right after they do that, they will do that this week apparently there will be a stock buyback. those are two headlines you see herbalife up on. they don't detract from ackman is saying. ackman is about to come out with his questions. he wants --. melissa: he is not being baing down at all? >> if you know anything about bill ackman, i know the herbalife people are gearing up for this, he will keep attacking them
reminded of dan rather, the documents were false, but accurate. this was exactly what, if you'll recall, paul ryan in his vice-presidential speech and in other places pointed out that barack obama gave a speech in janesville, wisconsin gm plant and said we're going to keep this open for a hundred years with the auto bailout and they closed it started making those cars in china. i'd like to also point out that china, by the way, the media fact checkers found that to be a lie, too, they sided with obama on that and romney-ryan was correct on that as well. >> steve: sure. >> i'd like to point out that 55% of gm's increased production in china by 55% since the bailout and make seven out of ten cars outside the united states. so it's a good thing we did this 83 billion dollar auto bailout for american jobs. >> steve: sure, but you know, a big part of the president's face are auto union workers, they hear, hey, they're going to ship a bunch of car manufacturing jobs out to china, oh, wait a minute, i don't like that idea. so you've got a fact checking organization that came in and said that's
